Menu

My hope is that they do some changes and bring there menu to the South East.They're in La.and Tn, so just move on down I-20 and I-75 to Al., Ms., and Ga.

Hmmmm...

I "think" I ate at a Del Taco once years ago. There is now one here in my home town but I've never eaten there. What makes it special?

On a side note: When I was about 16 Taco Bell came to my town. I had never seen (or even heard of) a hard taco shell. We always made tacos with actual corn tortillas. The tacos were 19¢ each. I would order a taco with no lettuce and they would fill the shell half way with meat and the other half with cheese. Seriously, the thing was stuffed full. If I tried that today I would get a shell that was maybe a quarter full at most. Times have certainly changed...

When I moved to the metro

When I moved to the metro Atlanta area in 1978, a Del Taco was shortly opened nearby within a few months. The location closed after about 3-4 years and I haven't seen a Del Taco restaurant since that time.
